 STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — In-state rivals Penn State and Pittsburgh are facing off again — on the basketball court.

The Pennsylvania programs will be pitted against each other in this year’s Big Ten-ACC Challenge. The Nittany Lions will visit the Panthers on Dec. 3.

Penn State and Pitt last met in 2005, when the Panthers won 94-51 in Pittsburgh.

Pitt, which is moving from the Big East to the ACC next season, leads the all-time series with Penn State 76-68.

The schools are also renewing their longtime football rivalry for a four-year series starting in 2016.
